Holding on


Meen nOkkum neeL vayal soozh viththuvakkOttu ammA
en pAl nOkkAyAgilum un patRu allAl patRu illEn
thAn nOkkAthu eththuyaram seythidinum thArvEnthan
kOlnOkki vaazhum kudi pOnRu irundhEnE !

Sri Kulasekara Aazhwaar’s PerumaaL Thirumozhi (690/1000/4000)

Oh Lord of VitthuvakOdu
Of vast fields with fish abundant
Though thy gaze is not on me
I hold on to none but thee
Like a subject who lives trusting the king
Despite all his clandestine cruelty

  1. Beautiful verse..
    You hold on by letting go of the fact that it is yours.
    and you let go by holding on to the fact that it was beautiful when it was..
    Hmm.. food for thought once again. 🙂
